Y Chromosome Test (Y-DNA)

For male relatives to establish whether they have the same biological father or share a common paternal line when the alleged father is not available. Only £199

Only £199 with results in 8-10 working days

The Y Chromosome Test, or Y-DNA test, will enable male relatives to establish whether they have the same biological father or share a common paternal line. Our test is extremely accurate because The Y chromosome is passed almost unchanged from father to son to grandson and can be used to trace back one, long direct paternal line.

Y Chromosome Testing Instead of Paternity Testing

If two or more males need to scientifically establish whether they share the same father, a Y chromosome test will provide the answer. Two males that share the same Y chromosome profile can also conclude that they share the same biological father (or a genetic paternal relative such as a grandfather). AffinityDNA’s Y chromosome test is ideal if you cannot opt for our Home Paternity Test which requires a direct comparison of the alleged father’s DNA and the DNA of his male child/children.

Our Y chromosome test uses a 10 genetic marker profile to confirm or exclude whether males tested share a common paternal relative.

Y Chromosome Testing in Forensic Analysis

Because the Y chromosome is the defining chromosome of the male sex, carried exclusively by males and encoding all attributes which result in “maleness”, it can also be used in forensic investigations to confirm whether a DNA sample found at a crime scene or in a missing person investigation contains male DNA. The Y chromosome profile found in a sample can also be compared to any suspects to confirm or exclude they belong to the same person.

What the Y-DNA Test Cannot Do

All males from the same paternal blood line have the same Y chromosome. Because the Y chromosome is identical between all related males, the results of a Y chromosome cannot tell you the relationship between the males tested. You will need to draw your own conclusions based upon the result of the test and what you aim to discover.

Discover Your Paternal Origins

We offer a deep ancestry, paternal lineage test which will trace your patrilineal ancestry thousands of years back, exclusively taking your ancestry from your father’s side. This test is possible because of unique inheritance pattern we see with the Y chromosome which makes Y chromosome testing a very powerful tool amongst genealogists. It can be used to map the migration paths of one’s paternal ancestors and establish their very own Y chromosome haplogroup affiliation. For more details about this important genealogical tool, visit our Paternal Lineage page.

Dog Allergy Testing Kit Review
Hello Team, I would love to thank all involved in testing my dog allergies. Since that test she finally lives her life itch free as it enabled us to avoid products causing her allergic reaction. I am very grateful for this report as her health massively improved after we removed all listed products from her diet. Since that time I have been suggesting other dog owners which battle similar issue to use your service. 5* from Blue.

Dog Allergy Test Kit Review
We had our dog allergy tested with you last year. We were advised that it is not a good enough test by our vet and many others online. This however couldn't be more wrong. We used the results to remove foods from her diet and even hypo-allergenic shampoos etc. Since she turned 1 years old we had her allergy tested by blood at the vet to see if she had out grown any of these allergies. The results were exactly the same as we were given by yourselves. Everything in red she is still allergic to. Without your help I'm not sure how we would of been able to help her in her first year. Especially given that she is allergic to almost everything hypoallergenic.

Please forward my praise to your superiors with regards to your customer attention - thank you for all the communication at all times, and making sure all OK. Much appreciated. 1 day into eliminating salmon oil from her diet (daily supplement I was giving her for for her arthritis) and the turkey menus she is considerably better, all in 24 hrs. Can’t wait to see how she improves within a few weeks of elimination.
